The Great Barrier Reef & Queensland Touring

THE GREAT BARRIER REEF & QUEENSLAND TOURING

With its idyllic tropical islands, breathtaking beaches, untamed lush rainforest, a dazzling underwater world, thriving city slick lifestyles and 300 days of sunshine a year, it isn’t hard to see why Australia’s Queensland appears to have it all.

Occupying the entire north-east corner of Australia’s vast mainland, Queensland is home to some of the world’s most renowned landmarks, many of which have been carved from nature’s fair hand, making it a must-visit on any Australia tour.

...

Few natural marvels can be as extraordinary as the Great Barrier Reef, which fringes the Australian east coast in the turquoise stretches of the Coral Sea.  Home to some of the world’s most beautiful – yet endangered – marine life, the Great Barrier Reef supports incredible diversity, making it a unique experience for anyone with diving familiarity.

Even for those who aren’t trained to scuba dive, a Great Barrier Reef tour with Travelbag also offers the opportunity for novice snorkelling or travelling on a glass-bottom boat/aquarium to ensure you don’t miss out on this magical experience.

Beyond the Great Barrier Reef, a Queensland tour holds much appeal for every visitor, whether you want the freedom of an independent tour, the benefits of an escorted tour helmed by our team of friendly and knowledgeable guides, or the intimacy of a small group tour.

Few can resist the splendid beaches that fringe the east coast, most notably those to be enjoyed at Gold Coast, Airlie Beach and Mission Beach, locations you will have the pleasure of visiting on selected Travelbag Queensland tours.

We especially recommend the picturesque Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand bar, and the Whitsunday Islands for a truly blissful beach experience, where the cobalt waters, pearlescent sands and lush interior create a stunning tropical setting.

A Travelbag Queensland tour will allow you to venture into Australia’s lesser-known rainforests around the Atherton Tablelands, where lush greenery, picturesque waterfalls and dramatic landscapes can be explored. A particular highlight is travelling on the Kuranda Skyrail above the rainforest canopy for unrivalled views across this untamed patch of land.

Queensland is far more than just hideaways though, so for those who enjoy the vibe of city life, Brisbane, Cairns and the Gold Coast will more than sate the appetite for culture and adventure. 

Indeed, it’s difficult not to be seduced by Queensland, whether you are feeling the soft sands between your toes, being mesmerised by the kaleidoscope of colours across the Great Barrier Reef, or looking into the eyes of the animals at world-famous Australia Zoo.

Few holidays can be as special or as memorable as a Queensland tour, so why not treat yourself and your family for 2016?
